My Girlfriend is a Girl from Russia (แฟนของผมเป็นเด็กสาวจากรัสเซีย) – bonutzuu’s light novel archive

I’ve talked a lot about light novels from Japan and wuxia novels, so I should also talk about light novels from Thailand, where I’m from.

I have mixed feelings about this book, and I’ll tell you why.

My Girlfriend from Russia (I don’t know what the official English title is so I’ll call it that) is a light novel published by Palo Publishing.

One day, Cha, a single romantic novelist received a phone call from his ex, asking him to meet up at her old house. There, he met Anastasia Yada Palov, a half-Thai-half-Russian elementary school girl who is his ex’s daughter. It turns out that his ex needed to go abroad to treat her illness, and asked Cha to take care of her daughter for the time being.

Cang Hai (滄海) by Feng Ge – bonutzuu’s wuxia archive

I decided to start a new post category because of how much I have to say about this novel series.

Cang Hai is a 6-volume wuxia novel series by Feng Ge, and is part of a larger series which, from what I understand, includes another series called Kunlun and another series that is Kunlun’s prequel. I read Cang Hai in Thai, so I’m sorry if I make a mistake in any character or place names. Additionally, the Thai release splits the series into 8 volumes, so any reference I make about the volume number will be based on the Thai release version.

Cang Hai mainly follows the adventures of Lu Jian, a simple boy from a fisherman’s village who gets entangled with a bunch of weird people and the quest for the eight ancient scrolls that will shake the entire martial arts community.

For this review, I will talk about the overall plot and characters, then I will write my thoughts on the novel.

Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi LN/manga volume 6 – bonutzuu’s light novel archive

I bought volume 6 of both the manga and light novel at the same time, so I’ll just write about them together. The final volume of the manga covers volume 5-6 of the light novel (these content were not in the anime).

[This post contains full spoilers for both of these books.]

Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi (A Dark Rabbit has Seven Lives) is a manga by Asahina Shiori, adapted from the light novel of the same name by Kagami Takaya with original character design by Kamiya Yuu. It was published after volume 6 of the light novel and covers the content of volume 1-6.

Kurogane Taito got into a car accident which should have killed him, but found out the he revived thanks to the ‘poison’ given to him by a vampire girl he met as a kid. That vampire is Saitohimea, a being capable of destroying the entire world. And so a very complicated story begins.

Let’s start with the LN first because the manga cuts a lot of volume 5’s content out and I should talk about that. (*Note: I read everything in Thai, and I couldn’t find the English translation for some of the names, so correct me if I got the names wrong.)

Unboxing 86 (Eighty-Six) Light Novel volume 5 + 6 + special booklet *No Spoilers*

It’s the time of a pandemic. I’m still under an unofficial lockdown because of how chaotic the vaccine management is. Anyway, waiting for stuff in the mail became something to look forward to, and the 86 light novels I pre-ordered came in the mail. Hurray!

Because my Wifi sucks, I couldn’t load the pre-order webpage and get to my shipping status, so I was quite surprised it came so quickly.

I ordered my copy from phoenixnext.com, the official publisher of 86 novels in Thailand. They have two sets, one of them is this:

(LN) Complete Set 86 -เอทตี้ซิกซ์- เล่ม 6

Zombie Kiss Vol.4 [Ch.1 The Labyrinth of Promises] 1

Prologue

Grey clouds, like fumes from an exhaust pipe, dominated the sky. The muddy grey seemed depressing, but at least after the rain, there would be a clear blue sky. Unlike her heart. No light had ever shone through to it.

“Looks like it’s about to rain. Nil, you brought your umbrella, right, sweety?”

The mother, sending her daughter off at the bus stop as usual, remarked.

“Yes.” Nilthepi, or Nil, answered. “I took it before I left the house, exactly as you told me to.”

On the surface, it seemed like any ordinary conversation between a mother and a daughter.

“Go straight to the university.”

“Yes.”

The same conversation, over and over.

The same conversation, every single day.

“Have you checked your belongings? Do you have everything?”

“Yes.”

Just like a mother and her middle school daughter, learning to get to school by herself.

The woman looked at her university uniform. A knee-length pleated skirt, a perfectly-fitting white shirt. It was not tight, but she felt suffocated.

No matter where one looks, the woman is the very definition of an obedient child.

“Oh my, what’s up with kids these days? They’re dressed like whores.”

In this post: novel review, summary, and whether or not Willem and Nephren are alive.

The world ended five hundred years ago, when the Beasts turned the earth’s surface into gray dust and wiped out all of humanity. Surviving races migrated to floating islands, Regles Aile, and live happy lives untouched by the Beasts. However, even the air is not entirely safe, and to protect this ending world, young girls called ‘Leprechauns’ wield swords too large for their small bodies to protect all.

Zombie Kiss Vol. 4 [Intro]

Zombie Kiss Volume 4: Friendship, Hope, Betrayal

<Index>

Image result for สาปศพนางฟ้า

Our entire world is woven from thin threads called “bonds”

Bonds between human and nature

Bonds between human and each other

They say a strong bond makes a stronger man

But on the other hand, such bonds are easily broken

That is why I have never believed in something so transient

Only “death” is eternal

Until one day, a thin thread lowered itself into a deep, dark pit

The one, single bond I will never let go of

Absolutely…no matter what happens…
